do you haiku?

i’m a little nervous because i have to give an award of the highest honor… i’ve been working so hard on this speech and i still don’t have it quite right. but i’m gonna go ahead. (ahem, ahem – clearing my throat) the first ever “i haiku, do you?” badge goes to….. drum roll please… WINEYMOMMA for

no longer will he
drop his extras in my bag
he can carry his own

i thought they were all great, and really wanted to declare every one of you a winner, but there can be only one. (it’s one of the problems today, everyone wins, no one loses and no one knows how to be a good sport – but that’s not what i’m talking about today.) so congratulations wineymomma – you do haiku.

now for today’s topic…

it’s october 19, also known as evaluate your life day… so today we’re going to do an evaluate your life haiku. The only rules that need to be followed are the rules of haiku. just like last time, i’ll start.

    It is full of beautiful animal pictures and great haiku about said animals. My kids really love it and I must say I enjoy it too!

    Happy Friday everybody!
